The Joy from your Sharing by Fr Fabius

Dear Fr Martin and parishioners,
Please, accept my greeting and appreciation that emanates from your care and joy to share with us. As we read in Acts 20:35 – “there is more joy in giving than receiving”, I pray that you experience this joy more than us who benefited.

100 Years of Catholic Worship 1919-2019

ST KEVIN’S PARISH EASTWOOD CENTENARY CELEBRATION, 2nd March 2019
It’s definitely a significant milestone for any organisation to celebrate 100 years of continuous service to any community.
The first liturgical service officially celebrated at Eastwood in the original Church was a Mass. This building is now the school library. It served as the Parish Church for 75 years!

A Message of Thanks from Fr Fabius


Dear Fr. Martin and parishioners,
Thank you so much for your generous contributions to Pere Achte Primary School. I am so grateful to God that He created you for a purpose: to love God and your fellow human beings. The story of the “Good Samaritan” we read in the Bible is not always understood even by us who struggle to expound God’s Word. I’ve heard from Marissa who communicated to me with lots of surprising excitement and joy.

STOP PRESS – Uganda…An Update, January 2019

by Marissa Pongan

Dear Fr. Martin, St.Kevin Parishioners and Friends,

Fr. Fabius embraces you with blessings and greetings for the new year.

You may recall reading “A Ugandan Experience” last October detailing my stay with Fr. Fabius. Challenges identified was building a temporary kitchen and providing adequate food for the children of Pere Achte Pre-School and Primary School. These goals have been achieved! The temporary kitchen has been built and the children received a daytime meal of maize porridge for the 3rd Term (Sept – early Dec) 2018.

This is an amazing achievement (on your part) reflecting not only a caring community, but one that is excited about been involved and emotionally connected in making peoples’ lives better.

If you wish to donate to this worthy cause, contact the parish office. No amount is too small!
